“What you do speaks so loudly that I cannot hear what you say.” ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Here’s a take on the “Actions speak louder than words. adage. It’s true that words can often be contradicted by the actions we take. This may be because words are easy to spew out, but you can only perform so many actions in a day.

Actions must be more thought out and are a more accurate measure of what you really intend to do. Make sure to choose your actions wisely, as others will come to their conclusions about you based on what you do rather than what you say. Many times there is a big discrepancy between what is said and what is done, which is why what you do matters more.

“Never let your memories be greater than your dreams.” ~Doug Ivester

Memories represent your past, and your dreams represent your future. The wisdom of this quote is that you should always have more planned for your future than what you’ve accomplished in the past. Getting nostalgic is one thing, but if you get to the point where you feel like your best days are behind you it can get pretty boring and desolate. Always have a dream to be working towards rather than sitting around thinking of the yesterdays gone by. Memories are still cherishable, but shouldn’t be your point of focus.

Keep your eye on the future so you will always be creating new memories of great times.

“Every moment is a fresh beginning.” ~T.S. Eliot

It’s interesting to think that you can start anew with each passing moment. You can let go of the past, let go of whatever is holding you back, and start again, doing whatever it is you want to do. It’s refreshing to know that the present is not entirely enmeshed in the past, and your future is being created moment by moment. If you’ve been mired in doubt and hesitation to start a new project or to mend a relationship because of things that have happened to you in the past, remember that this moment is totally new and you can move in the direction you want to go.

“If you have everything under control, you’re not moving fast enough.” ~Mario Andretti

This is an interesting concept to grasp, since many of us long for feeling like we have everything under control. But if that’s the case then it means you’re not getting as much done as you could. If you can reach a point where you feel comfortable with things being a little out of control you’ll be able to get more done and have a fuller experience. Leave it to a race car driver to come up with a quote about speed, but this is easily applicable to everyday life, by taking a look at how many balls you’re juggling and whether you feel challenged enough. Be able to give up some control in order to push your boundaries.

The price of anything is the amount of life you exchange for it.” ~Henry David Thoreau

This is true and gives new meaning to the phrase time is money. The reason people have so much emotion wrapped up in money is the time it takes to attain it. When you buy something and exchange money for it, what you’re really exchanging is the time it took you to earn the money, so your time is what really paid for everything you have in your life. Looking at money as your life energy will either make you feel better about it, or worse, depending on how much you have and how hard you feel you’ve worked to obtain it.
